Kipi plugins dont really know about versions at the moment. I assume that 
either, if you export a full directory, it takes all files in there, or, if 
you select a group of images to export, it will export there. We'll need to 
extend or kipi implementation.

The Batch tools do not have good versioning support either. IIRC currently, 
they will always generate a "new version".
